I lost 13 stone – now I know the truth about obesity

For years, I swallowed all the theories about fat, believing I could be obese and fit. Here are five dangerous myths, debunkedAs far back as I can remember, I was overweight. My parents were morbidly obese, just like three of my grandparents (my maternal grandmother was “only” obese – in other words, just fat). In my teenage years, I tried every diet going, and would sometimes lose weight, only to put it all on again. Eventually I concluded that so-called “normal” weight just wasn’t realistic fo...

How your brain makes you overeat

The brain's reward system releases dopamine when tasting food.Researchers at Max Planck discovered a second dopamine release in the stomach, affecting higher cognitive functions.

There was no relationship between obesity and poverty — until high-fructose corn syrup

Before 1990, there was no noticeable correlation between obesity and poverty. Within a quarter-century, impoverished regions showed a massive uptick in obesity and type 1 diabetes. Researchers chart the relationship between "food deserts" along with obesity levels. None In 1841, Orlando Jones patented alkali starch extraction, a process that separated corn starch from kernels in what is known as wet milling. One year later, Thomas Kingford opened the first commercial wet milling plant in the St...

Mice given an experimental gene therapy don't get fat, regardless of caloric intake

Researchers at Flinders University knocked out a gene known as RCAN1 in mice, hypothesizing that this would increase "non-shivering thermogenesis," which "expends calories as heat rather than storing them as fat" -- the mice were fed a high-calorie diet and did not gain weight. In particular, the modified mice did not store fat around their middles -- a phenomenon associated with many health risks, including cardiac problems -- and their resting muscles burned more calories. I wrote this i...

Metabolic health is awfully rare

Most people think about metabolic health in terms of leanness vs. obesity. But BMI doesn’t tell the whole story, and it’s the internal biochemical processes that affect the risk of a wide array of chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart and vascular disease. [Author: Dr. Ayala]
